A woman in Kursk region in southern Russia has paid a ransom to free her son from frauds posing as policemen – forgetting she never had male offspring.

The 54-year-old woman, whose name was withheld, was awoken at night by a call from an alleged traffic policeman informing her that her son was responsible for a large-scale road incident, police said on Tuesday.

She was told the matter could be settled for a bribe, and rushed off to transfer a total of 54,000 rubles ($1,600) to three telephone numbers via a payment terminal, the report said.
